January 11, 2008 -- Legrand Electric subsidiary Ortronics/Legrand, a specialist in high performance structured cabling platforms, announced the creation of the Legrand North America Commercial Data Communications Division.
The division will encompass the Ortronics/Legrand sales team and the four product sets available through the data communications channel from parent company Legrand North America (LNA). This designation includes the Ortronics structured cabling solutions, Wiremold pathways, Cablofil wire mesh cable tray, and On-Q home systems.
The company maintains that the new organization "supports the Legrand North America vision of becoming the premier choice for electrical and network infrastructure products, systems and solutions."
"We believe we can best serve our customers by providing complete network infrastructure solutions through a single point of contact," comments Mark Panico, president of Ortronics/Legrand. "Our sales team is highly knowledgeable in all aspects of the network infrastructure, so we are very pleased to extend their services to include these LNA solutions that are specified and sold through the data communications channel."
The formation of the expanded sales organization is expected to result in increased collaboration for product development, sales and marketing efforts.
"As Ortronics/Legrand continues to evolve, we're constantly seeking new ways to bring more comprehensive solutions and enhanced levels of service to our customers," states Jerry Nania, senior vice president of global sales for Ortronics/Legrand. "This move reinforces that commitment."
